Our black teas

Black tea is also picked and processed by hand by hand . In the same way as for green tea, we offer you four cuvées which differ according to the seasons and the method of drying the whole leaves.

4. Rolling and second fermentation

The leaves are vigorously rolled in order to "peel" them well to prepare them for the second fermentation.

This action breaks down cells to release essential oils while keeping the leaves whole.

Then the tea is again fermented for 24 to 36 hours. The leaves then take on their black color, more or less dark depending on the season.
